Countries have been taking a series of measures to try to stop the spread of a new strain of the new coronavirus.

Ômicron was classified as a “concern variant”. Early evidence suggests that it poses an increased risk of reinfection.

The variant was detected in South Africa earlier this month and reported to the World Health Organization (WHO) last Wednesday (24/11).

Ômicron is responsible for the majority of infections found in South Africa’s most populous province, Gauteng, in the past two weeks.
